O+A: Performing a requiem with Ableton Live

We heard about a performance art duo called O+A, AKA Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger, who were scheduled to perform a "Requiem for fossil fuels" in a bombed-out church near the Ableton offices. What really made us prick up our ears and listen, though, was the fact that Ableton Live forms an integral part of the performance. We decided to investigate. We found not only a fascinating project but also an unusual Live setup, some amazing acoustics and two very interesting artists. See for yourselves: watch the movie.
